The Theory of Interpreting

Instructor: Angela Zawadzki, PhD., State and Federal Court Certified Interpreter

Time: 9:00 AM to 12 noon

No second language is required. English comprehension is the only language requirement.
This is an introductory course for people who are thinking about entering the field of interpretation, who are required to do some interpretation work on their job and desire formal training, or for consumers and contractors of interpretation work who wish to know more about the process itself, so they can become better consumers of these services.

You will learn the principles of interpretation, what it is and should be, and the pitfalls of interpretation. We will begin the class with a brief history of interpretation and theories of interpretation. We will also look at what a professional interpreter should know, to inspire respect for this difficult, exciting, and highly satisfying profession. We will conclude with in-class examples of the different skills in interpretation. This assignment, should serve as a starting point for students wishing to continue with the Spanish Interpretation Level 1 course.
